Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Demon in disguise

David Bromberg recorded for Columbia Records, and Columbia had opened a new recording studio on Folsom Street in San Francisco. Garcia in particular liked playing sessions, and Columbia recorded a lot at CBS studios. I have heard that Bromberg really liked the Dead back in the day, so I'm sure he was pleased to have Garcia and others on his records, but it was basically a session gig. Garcia played a lot of seesions at CBS, and the Dead recorded Mars Hotel there.

Garcia, Kreutzmann and Keith Godchaux played on two tracks on Bromberg's second album, "Sharon" and the title track, "Demon In Disguise." Lesh may have played on the latter track as well. For the next album, "Wanted: Dead Or Alive," there were four studio tracks recorded with the Dead (Garcia, Keith, Lesh and BK) and the other side was recorded live with Bromberg's band. The Dead's tracks were recorded on August 17, 1972. Both albums are great, as are most of Bromberg's records.

Bromberg ultimately moved to Marin for a while, and lived next door to Buddy Cage. However, I'm not aware of any live performances with Bromberg and members of the Dead, sad to say. Bromberg and his band did open for the Dead in June 1979 in Portland. I just saw Bromberg last month, and he's as great as ever.

Thanks for the info Corry. Glad to hear he's still out and about playing well and presumably still sharing the banter with audience and musicians.

I think he appears in the UK less than Elvis did, but I console myself with downloaded shows, like the 12/12/72 I picked up a couple of weeks ago.
